By Jerry Barmash Comment

Notable radio and TV personality Ed Lover is now part of Emmis’ 98.7 Kiss FM family.

Lover, who was let go from Power 105.1 in November, will host Friday Night Live from 7 p.m. to midnight starting March 11.

“I am thrilled and honored to be joining the Kiss FM family! I admire the station, love the music, and have been an avid listener for years! God is good!”

“Ed has achieved great success in this market and is very well known and liked with our listeners. He fits in perfectly with the music, the community, and the culture of Kiss FM, Jill Strada, Kiss FM program director, says. “Ed Lover is a legend, and belongs on legendary radio stations.”

The Hollis, N.Y. native, Lover hosted a highly rated morning show on Hot 97 from 1993 to 1998.

Lover, perhaps, is best remembered for co-hosting Yo! MTV Raps in the 1990s.
